Organizing Crafts for Use in OT


So I just wanted to take a moment to brag and show off the project our most recent OT student did.  She created a binder of crafts that can be used in OT sessions with instructions and a sample of each craft.  She also labeled each one for what skills the craft can address depending on how you focus it.  Depending on the child’s age and what you are working on specifically you may want to do it over several sessions or to have part of the craft finished ahead of time so that the child can focus on just one aspect such as cutting, coloring, pincer grasp, threading, visual scanning, etc.

I will try to post about some of the crafts in upcoming blogs.

What other great organization strategies do you use?



  1. Ah, how awesome! I’m doing prerequisite courses to enter a Master’s program in OT some day. This made me smile. 🙂
